Google Reader Blogroll Widget

Description

Simple widget to list your Google Reader subscriptions as blogroll.

All you need is to specify the link to your public Google Reader page, can be found in the Google Reader settings: https://www.google.com/reader/settings in the “Folders and Tags”-tab, the “view public page”-link. Just copy/paste the whole link.

The widget allows you to choose one of Googles cholor schemes, if you select “None” it will generate a generic list that should look quite fine with most themes.

You can have multiple blogrolls with different designs.
